May is Marijuana Mental Health Awareness Month at Johnny’s Ambassadors!

May is Mental Health Awareness Month! So, Johnny’s Ambassadors is hosting Marijuana Mental Health Awareness Month, to draw attention to the mental harms that can come to youth who use marijuana! We are providing this toolkit to help you educate others.

Please join our Marijuana Prevention Challenge!

2. Share a link to 1 of the 5 marijuana research fact sheets (below the Infographics) each day from May 10-14 for National Substance Abuse Prevention Week.

You are free to download, post, and use these materials as you wish! We always gratefully accept your donations.
